  • Praxis Works Chain Rings Pro Review

    Only Shimano and Praxis offer forged rings. The Forging process not only strengthens the metal, but because it’s a quick-shot process, if allows Praxis to offer a ring with more details and features not commonly found on simply CNC’d rings. The process also keeps the cost of the rings low; allowing Praxis to offer their rings in matching pairs for roughly half the cost of one Shimano outer ring. Continue reading →

    Strengths:    Quality, price, quality and price...need I say more?

    Weaknesses:    Not much...looks maybe?

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought a set of the newer mid-compact rings (52/36) 110BCD to replace the awful rings that came on my stock FSA Gossamer crank. As stated by many, they are superb. Cycling action is smoother (the FSA rings has a strange "vibration" to them) and shifting between BG/SG is crisp once you set it up well. Given the price and level of quality...I can't find a single thing to really complain about. thing...I'm not the largest fan of the looks. They are ok but I wish they offered the look of their "classic" ring set for the mid compact line. That's a minor complaint though.

    Strengths:    Super fast shifts. Strong. Good value for a higher end chain ring set. Beautifully made.

    Weaknesses:    None at all!

    Bottom Line:   
    I put a set of these on my CX bike to do some Crit racing. Installed the 52/36 mid-compact set. The up-shift is lightning quick in spite of the 16 tooth difference. I had some concerns that my 5600 FD would have issues with it since it is listed as having a max of 15 teeth difference. No need to worry. Great product. 100% satisfied. Hope they make some single ring stuff soon. I would love to have a 42 tooth single for cross!

    Strengths:    Positive shifting.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Replaced original SRAM Rival Compact chain rings. It was showing signs of wear and had several bent teeth from several thousand miles of riding. It lasted through 4 chains. The Rival chain rings aren't bad, but the Praxis chain rings have made a very positive impression,, which is good because the Praxis rings are not cheap.

    I didn't realize how much the chain ring impacts shifting. Shifting is much more responsive with the Praxis chain ring than with the original chain rings. I would often miss the shift from small to large chain ring. Issue is resolved with the Praxis chain rings. I am using the SRAM 1091R Chain, and no problems with the shifting performance. Drive train seems much quieter with the new chain rings.

    Chain Rings were not in stock at the local dealer, but they were able to get them in 3 days. Price was the same if I ordered through the local bike shop or from Praxis, so I chose to support a local shop.

    Strengths:    Affordable- awesome performance for the price. Several color choices. Cold-forged = strong stiff and precise!

    Weaknesses:    None!

    Bottom Line:   
    This chainring is 100% worth the money. I used it to replace the SRAM ones on my force crank that had a messed up tooth. I'm not super knowledgeable about bike parts but my shop told me about this company and the cold forging process and how it makes these stronger, stiffer and precise for better shifting. It's a pretty cool story so I decided to give them a try. I'm glad I did. I noticed a difference right away- my shifting is crisper and it feels great.

    Strengths:    Perfect shifting! Good looks, light weight at 128 grams for both rings

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I have used the Praxis Works Chainring set in std 53/39 format for the last 5-6 months. I mostly do recreational rides from 40-60 miles. I do alot of hil climbing. The chainset has shifted flawlessly on both my Di2 10 speed C59 and my Campy SR11 C50. The dealer support has been very good and they look very good. And would definitely buy this set again.

    46t cx big ring on a compact ROAD bike

    My LBS had these CX rings that were 46t for a 110 bcd compact crank. I thought this might be useful for me as I like to cruise on the flatter roads in my 50/22 or 50/25. It's a bit of cross chaining and if I get to any sort of incline, I have to drop to my small ring. I don't see why this would ... Read More »
